Mr. Heater hose assembly. Need Teflon tape?

5 posts in this topic

Hey quys got a quick question for ya. I just purchased the hose to hook my Mr. Heater/Cooker to a 11lb LP tank. I was planning on just tightening both ends on and be done with it. My buddy says I need to put teflon tape on connections. I looked in at the packaging the hose came in and could not find anything about teflon tape. I always thought since the 1lb tank just screws on the hose would be the same way. Also wouldn't the LP breakdown the teflon tape anyways creating more problems? Did you guys use teflon tape?

Thanks in advance. I don't want my FT Yukon to turn into a propane fueled spud gun with ME being the spud tomorrow on the ice:)!!!!

I have never used Teflon tape on any of the propane fittings I have screwed together. Now is this right, I do not know, but i have never had a leak issue yet in 20 years of putting togther Mr. heater stuff and other propane stuff.

Good luck..

Only if you've stripped the threads...which in most cases I avoid using them.

      1-2" in most lakes under 100 acres with moderate depth in the north metro. Smaller lakes likely have more.    Fingers crossed the snow misses us

      Went out with my poker this morning and checked ice at Johanna. The entire lake is finally locked up and there is about an inch of ice at the end of the dock. Hopefully the snow misses us this morning and we start to build some quality ice.

      I checked numerous Aitken area lakes yesterday, 9th. The only lake where I saw any open water remaining was Cedar south of Aitken.  Ripple, Dam, Clear, Hanging Kettle, Sissabagama, Anne, Rabbit, all locked up. 2" in most places, but after last night I'm sure it added more. I would guess in the next couple days there will be walk-out traffic. There were 6 porty's on  Shakopee yesterday, and although I did not check the ice, I'd assume there is decent ice there. There were houses out there already Wed.   Be safe, use caution and common sense, and do lots of checking.

      Ice Report: Pearl Lake 4 1/2 inches on shore line. 5 inches out a couple hundred feet. 1 guy out fishing way out there.  Grand Lake 2 inches about 10 ft out from public access.

      Well from what I saw yesterday I could wet a line thru the ice today I think knot. im going to give it a week for myself personaly. but on my way to work at 3pm yesterday I looked over at the lake I mentioned was iced over since Wed. and seen two groups of 2 out in the middle of the lake ice shelters and all and 2 of them weren't that far from the aerator out there.  I just hope everyone had a good and safe day out there and no one found anything out the hard way. At best that lake caped off Tuesday night. But I predict by next weekend there will be many places to ice fish and some evan before.  Three hard strikes with the Spud Bar followed by the foot
